HA! Ecstasy… that’s a great shot! Love the backlighting!
Well that’s piqued my interest. More workshop fun and games I’m assuming.
I am so confused by the last one. Is this some photrickery?
Hey, I can’t wait to attend one of your workshops!
O boy o boy o boy!!!
Hi Joe, you don’t know me but I am a admirer of your works through which I know u from Louise Pang’s blog. Happy birthday!!!
Note the face (and especially the eyes) of the “excitement!” woman are very symmetrical. A bit unusual compared to most human faces (compare it with other facial close-ups on this web site). Such symmetry is very appealing to look at. A great model and a really great photo.
Love ecstasy! Keep posting, inspiring and teaching!!!
Hi Joe, first off.. Happy Birthday!!! Thank you for sharing your knowledge to use aspiring photographers. You have a unique way of presenting your photographic knowledge and that is why you’re one of my idols in this field. Keep it up and cheers!
All the photos are awesome, but the first photo ROCKS!
John , seems like he’s using 3 flash setup – 2 on each side and little behind the model with red gel on them and one flash with a grid on the face , pretty cool shot !!!
And I love the first one , and the third one , actually … ALL OF THEM , lol
The excitement’s kicker light source looks huge, what is that behind her if i be so bold to ask?
LOOOVE the lighting of the agony
Agony – Fun with snoots?
Fantastic shots, especially the first one! Great lighting!! Thanks for sharing…
Lighting workshop at Dobbs Ferry was awesome. Lots of information. Watched the Master’s “thinking process” Also ” Hands on” activity. Hope Joe is back at Dobbs Ferry again.
Great shots…Getting ready for a shot at this myself…the location in Montgomery is gonna rock. Not to mention the models we’ve lined up, Civil Rights Icons, politicians and G.R.I.T.S. and of course a good ol’ boy. The bus service from the Atlanta airport is probably going to give in for a few good shots too. KG
Looks like everyones having fun!!
Joe, the workshop yesterday was fantastic. I learned a ton and I was so glad to be there. AND on your birthday, that was pretty rad. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Keep doin what you do.
Awesome photos, not that I would expect less from you and one of your workshops. I really wish you would come south more often, but I am watching your workshop itinerary for when you do.
Happy birthday Joe!
I liked the “excitement” photo the most. Great orange back lighting, and genuine facial expression. Other two had less natural looks.
Thank you for sharing your work!
Great workshop Joe! You even made a Canon user feel welcome.
Cool pics! Always inspiring images and info on your blog Joe. Got the chance to see you live once in Norway, and even though it was a rather quick show, and not a workshop, it was both very fun and inspiring. How’bout throwing one of your excellent workshops here in Norway some time soon?!
